on current.com about john kerry and why president obama should give him the job of secretary of state and not ambassador susan rice. nothing against ambassador susan rice. it is just that john kerry deserves it. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and oh, by the way again without john kerry saying oh yeah, president obama, barack obama you can do the keynote speech in 2004 when you're only a state senator who's running for senate without that opportunity, there is no obama campaign in 2008. john kerry wants the job. give it to him. got some guy malcolm johnson would calls that 100% idiotic statement. too bad, malcolm. that's how it is. special shout out to the folks on twitter. dab ra and alan -- debra and alan and a couple of others. honesty following us on twitter. >> tweeting at bp show, on this topic, patricia says the media has been reduced to reporting g.o.p. conspiracy theories which is a good point. buckeye kenny saying they're going to try to turn this into something to ruin the presid

[inaudible conversations] >> good to see you. aren't you glad i'm not blaming you. i was explaining what i came out -- it's rude to look at the launch in the middle of the interview. it's like a half hour later and you were -- [inaudible conversations] [inaudible] why haven't you -- [inaudible] >> that's great. i'll be in new york for that. hello. i'll see you later. [inaudible conversations] >> have you read it? >> no. you sent it to us. i know. thank you. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible] he changed his e-mail address. you are e-mailing me and you're not e-mailing me back. >> i hnlt planned to say anything. but since i'm late my publishers -- told me it would be polite for me to say something. i want to start off by saying his fault that i was late. that's the most important thing. it's not my fault. thank you so much for all coming tonight. you won't see anything about the book in my of the mainstream media except the "the view," i love those gals. [laughter] i really, really
, but i had a lot of friends including the mayor and chief of police john timiny. that's not a bad way to start. i say start at the top. [laughter] >> of course, when you were down here, we both told you that you had the mayor and the chief of police who had both immigrated to the united states in the same year, 1961, and both from an island, though an ocean apart. >> you know, i didn't realize it was the same year. that was, john was born in dublin, and i don't know how many of you really remember john's -- you probably do -- his faith. he is the ultra irishman. and when you look at him, you know you're talking to a tough irishman. and one of his colleagues today today -- told me, he said john only had to draw his pistol twice, and those were shootouts. he said the rest of them he just looked at 'em. [laughter] anyway, that's how i got started, and what a great way to start. john immediately put me on a safe boat, which i'd never heard of before, of a miami marine patrol. it was like a foamy pancake but 25 feet long. and he goes 40 some miles an hour over water. that's fast actually.
. and the sound of music. john bentley visits the only school teaching afghan students about their musical heritage. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news." >> brennan: good evening. i'm margaret brennan. there is no cease-fire as yet between israel and hamas militants in gaza, though diplomatic efforts are under way. here's the latest-- israel says it's launched nearly 200 airstrikes against more than 800 targets. gaza officials say today's strikes killed 12 people, including eight militants. all told, 42 palestinians and three israeli civilians have been killed in four days of fighting. allen pizzey is in tel aviv tonight. >> reporter: only hours after it was set up, this antimissile battery in tel aviv interpreted a long-range rocket aimed at the hate of israel's commercial capital. five such batteries, called iron dome, have been keploid and three more are being rushed into production. in an expansion of the air war against hamas, the israelis struck the office of the movement's prime minister overnight. attacks were also aimed at other parts of hamas' political str
but organizing this talk. and john phillips, a mechanical engineer, all over the world who is here and advised me on technical aspects of energy in the book and to read the will manuscript to check on scientific details of it. this is an appropriate day for talking about "regulating to disaster" because president obama promised once more to develop the energy sources of the future. when any administration, republican or democrat decides to develop energy projects, taxpayers had better watch out. governments get in the business of picking winners and losers which leads to cronyism and wasted taxpayer dollars. this is the question of industrial policy, whether government should support business ventures in new technologies that are unable to secure private funding. government appears to be worse at this than private markets from the records we have over the past five years. in contrast in a speech in california in may, mitt romney said, quote, the president doesn't understand when you invest like that in one solar energy company it makes it harder for solar technology generally because the other en
of the security and exchange division, john beretta, head of the de deepwater horizon and achieving justice for those whose lives and livelihoods were impacted by the largest environmental disaster in the history of the united states. and to hold accountable -- hold accountable those who for responsibility for this tragedy. today, in the united states district court here in the eastern district of louisiana in new orleans the department filed a 14-count information charging bp with 11 counts of felony manslaughter. one count of felony obstruction of justice. and violations of the clean water and mike are tori bird treaty acts in connection with the oil spill that began in april of 2010. bp has agreed to plead guilty to all 14 criminal charges. including responsibility for the deaths of 11 people and the events that led to an unprecedented environmental catastrophe. the company agreed to pay $4 billion in fines and in penalties. this marks both the largest single criminal fine, more than $1.25 billion. and the largest total criminal resolution $4 billion in the history of the united states.
's go down now to john in louisiana, is it outen, louisiana john? caller: it's up the northwest corner of the state. host: john, what's your reaction to the fine announcement? caller: well, i'm skeptical as i'm 70 years old, i've seen a lot of the federal government in my life. any time that amount of money gets dumped into the federal government, one must ask who in the bureaucracy is going to decide where that money goes to. i've been reading a lot of stuff about environmental cleanup, this, that and the other. but millions of lives were altered by the loss of income through a lot of reasons, even people that worked in the oil industry. i'm skeptical that those people, in other words the people who have their pocketbooks have been affected, are necessarily going to see any of that money, or at least anywhere near what they lost. and instead it becomes, and to use kind of a slush fund for all kinds of other things that are not necessarily related. i was just reading some of the various, some of the grants that have been given already. those were not the people that were affected on th
the other way. john boldin, not susan rice, would be the hot talk for secretary of state. war clouds would be overhead and the bugles blaring would be marching to iran. just think self-deportation would be the name of the game for immigration. voter suppression would be the toast of the town, or certain parts of town. the extinction of health care would be hr-1, up there on the front burner for congressional action. just think, if the election had gone the other way the rich would be basking in the best tax protection known to man, a real-life, genuine mandate to leave them and their money alone. but a funny thing happened on the way to the white house. people voted for tax fairness. they voted to make the rich pay their share, specifically voted that way for one thing because the republicans kept warning them not to. and so it came to pass today that president obama said just that at his press conference. give the middle class their tax cuts, speaker boehner. cut it loose so they can go christmas shopping, senator mcconnell. it's what the people voted for. that's why they voted for me. th
workers are injured. and abc's john schriffen is in new orleans with the very latest. john, what do we know? >> reporter: well, bianna, good morning. we know that the coast guard launched the chopper just a short while ago to resume the search from the air. all night, they've been out in boats just like this one, using night vision goggles and infrared technology. so far, there's been no sign of the two, missing workers. but the coast guard is using the latest technology to find them before it's too late. it's an all-out effort from the coast guard's units from the air and the sea, for the 2 oil platform workers who have now been missing close to 24 hours. authorities have not revealed their names or even genders. but they believe they are out somewhere in the massive gulf of mexico, alive. the two disappeared after jumping into the water off the coast of louisiana when the oil platform they were working on suddenly exploded. the blast was so intense, black smoke billowed more than 1,000 feet into the air and could be seen 20 miles away on shore. black elk energy, the houston-based com
,000 bond. police in anne arundel county arrested john charles villiers-farrow today. they say two men came forward in august saying he sexually abused them when they were just 9 years old. the allegations refer to a time period between 2000 and 2008. derrick ward is following this story this afternoon and will have the latest developments tonight on news4 at 5:00. >>> unprecedented penalty, bp has agreed to pay a record u.s. fine for the massive oil spill down in the gulf of mexico in a settlement with the justice department. they'll pay $4.5 billion and plead guilty to 14 criminal charges. the government also charged two top bp officers with manslaughter in connection with the 11 people who died onboard the deep water horizon two years ago. jay gray explains why bp could still face more charges. >> reporter: the oil spread for miles after the collapse of the deepwater horizon well, choking away wildlife and crippling communities all along the gulf coast. and today, more than two years after the disaster, we learn the punishment is far-reaching as well. >> this marks both the largest singl
. rich: they are not offering very many specifics this early on. we do have a ways to go. john boehner did offer framework. the framework would have tax and entitlement targets, revenue targets, spending targets, that this year in the next couple months. congress would work out the details in 2013. both leaders from both parties and both houses say it is time to get to work. >> we will continue to have revenue on the table. we are serious. we are serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal problems. >> we will do it now. we feel very comfortable with each other. this is not something we will wait until the last day of december to get it done. rich: they met for a little longer than an hour here at the white house. much of the talk was positive. there really is not anything close to specifics right now coming from anyone in all of this. here he read and nancy pelosi really did not mention entitlement at all. rich o'connell highlighted the fact that his conference in the senate believes that this country does not have a taxing problem, it has a spending problem. there are still
is representative john heck and peter king. here is their interpretation of the closed door hearings. >> the initial talking points put together in unclassified format at the house intelligence committee initially did state that al qaeda affiliated groups were involved. however, by the time we understand that went through its editing process after it left langley that reference was taken out. >> the fact is the best estimate of the intelligence community on september 15th and 16th was that there was direct al qaeda involvement. that was taken out. to me, again, if i had to presume i would say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out. because there was nobody in the director of national intelligence office. nobody in the cia that did it. so, it was someone else that did it. >> someone in the administration. if you go to the front page of foxnews.com right now you will see the big story on there that's racing raising the question in that piece. we will be speaking to peter king to try to figure out who the administration got the intelligence information their hands and said, okay
of those things need to be in play. when john boehner talks about raising revenue he's willing to do that if it only comes in the form of tax reform, not raising tax rates, but actually lore erring tax rates, closing loopholes, broadening the base and you will get more money coming into the treasury. the other part of the equation that is so important which has not been part of the public conversation is cutting spending, not just slowing the rate of growth but actually cutting spending to try to get this deficit under control. i know the republicans don't control the narrative on this but i want to hear more from them on that side of the equation. jon: julie our nodding your head you must agree. >> i think both sides need to come to the table. enough already with these sort of, you know, showmanship, game man ship, these are people's lives that are at stake in this economy. monica is right in that the president does control the upper hand at this point. if nothing is done all the bush tax rates will expire. you have exit polling coming out of the recent election saying two-thirds of
that it was a coordinated attack. senator john mccain is trying to block her if she is chosen to succeed hillary clinton. >>> benghazi hearings won't be the only major discussion on capitol hill. they will learn more about the fbi's investigation that led to david petraeus's resignation. robert mueller and shawn joyce will meet for a second straight day. paula broadwell september e-mail toss several high-ranking military officers in an attempt to undermine tampa socialite's reputation. she is friends with petraeus and it cost both some privileges. the military suspended the u.s. army security clearance and kelley's air force base pass. >>> the edge of the fiscal cliff is still a month and a half away but it is already spooking investigators on wall street. the dow posted its third triple digit loss in more than a week closing down 185 points. both it and the s&p 500 ended at the lowest levels since the summer. the nasdaq is down 10% from just september. investors say the fear of grid lock on capitol hill is driving this tailspin. president obama, though, says there is room for agreement. >>> as i've sai
employed. this is on the senate floor yesterday. john mccain called for the select committee to investigate the attacks. [video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25? we need a select committee. americans deserve to know. the families of those slain americans need to know. why in the world the administration or our friends and the other side of the aisle or anybody would test -- resist the appointment of a select committee. host: we will hear president obama's response to criticism. our question first is, how confident are you in a white house

. >> is that the big onus on john boehner? >> i think it is the onus on all of the negotiators. it's all of them at this point. because that's where the spotlight is. yeah. it's going to be quite a task. we saw that when this happened the last time. it's going to come right up to the line. i think we might be here late december. >> the drama will take us through the end of the year. our power panel, jackie kucinich, blake, robert, thanks to all three of you. >>> up next i'll talk with someone who was in this morning's closed door hearing with general petraeus, republican congressman tom rooney will join the show. what do you think about today's testimony? tweet me your comments at thomas a. roberts. we're back after this.

with abc news last week, house speaker john boehner said this about immigration reform. quote, while i believe it's important for us to secure our borders and enforce our laws, i think a comprehensive approach is long overdue and i'm confident myself, the president and others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all. later he tried to backout after he was called out by conservative tea party bloggers as well as conservative members of congress. this a sign that the tea party isn't quite over yet? >> and it's not. and i think sometimes the people who are left are the most extreme. and they're going the double down. and again, we're seeing this in indiana, for example, in texas, a little bit in georgia. so the people who are left are going to give it their all. but where we're going to see in the next two to three years is the pressure of needing to get electoral gains there is only so many elections you can lose before you change course. and that's going happen. maybe they can hang on for another two years. but beyond that, the math doesn't add up for repub

for contemplation here at the edge of washington's fiscal cliff as republicans like john baner have not months or weeks but days to decide if they overturn decades of party orthodox and tax increases to head off something worse across the board spending cuts and tax increases that could throw the economy into a recession. look at the overall debt in excess of 16 trillion dollars. part of the debate whether or not social security and medicare should be on the table. seed on the phone from buzzard's bay. republican line. >> good morning. steve, we've got so many groups and caucus they're all saying now you have your it's time for me to have mine. once that group gets what they want the next group says, well the first two got what they want and this is what we want. this, i don't see this ending. it's very sad situation and unfortunately i don't see much of a future as long as we have all these groups and caucuses. can i give you constructive criticism. i've been watching c-span now for decades and especially "washington journal". if i don't see it live i'll watch the tape. the new gentlemen you
. >> senator, good points. but regarding susan rice, john mccain said she has a lot of explaining to do. lindsay graham asked if he would filibuster her name and he said we'll have to see what happens. but john mccain. there she is now . she should go on the tv shows that she gave the false talking points and said i said stuff that was wrong and john mccain said that would be a good start for her. >> no one said they would not vote for her yet. but this is fundmentally what i got out of the sunday shows. why is it that the unclassified briefing that susan rice got different than the reality that the administration got? why can't we ever know the truth? unclassified briefing that different from the classified briefing? one is the right way and one the wrong way. do an unclassified victory fiction and unclassified nonfiction. >> steve: there was a general electionn coming up a lot of people on the right said it was a watergate style cover up the president of the united states had been down in charlotte and we heard about al-qaida was on the heels and it would not be helpful to his reelect
former cia director petraeus. the current commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, his name is john john allen, is now being investigated. he is accused of sending, or being involved with thousands of e-mails with jill kelley. she is the florida socialite who led the fbi to petraeus. steve handelsman is on capitol hill with more on this. >> thanks. good evening from capitol hill. coincidentally, general kelley is not in afghanistan tonight. he came here to washington for a hearing that was to be held tomorrow. it has been put off, day after tomorrow on, what allen still hope will be his promotion to a better job. instead, his reputation is being called into question. general john allen, u.s. commander in afghanistan, was on track to be nato commander until the disclosure that he is under investigation by the pentagon. jill kelley, a socialite in tampa and general allen allegedly exchanged e-mails and documents that were called inappropriate. allen insisted there was no affair. kelley's complaints that she was getting harassing e-mails led the fbi to paula broadwell and the affair between
and slower revenue growth for the current quarter. john chambers sees europe getting worse before it gets better, but he says there are signs of improvement in the u.s. economy. >> we want to be the one company that both exceeds expectations and doesn't bring down guidance. so kind of a hint on terms of what we see. it really says we're in the right spots for growth. mobility, byod, the internet of everything, video, all growth areas in terms of opportunities going forward. and we think we're positioned pretty well. >> we've also got some facebook news this morning. toyota recalling nearly three million vehicles worldwide, that includes the prius. this is due to problems with the steering system. the announcement comes a month after toyota recalled more than seven million vehicles for faulty power window switches that are a potential fire hazard. mr. kernen, good morning. >> andrew, 20 seems to be what facebook is worth, kind of? >> well, it hasn't moved. >> but it kind of found its -- 38, i don't know. but things are worth something, even after you get the people that are really excited
. obviously, the scandal involving the former cia director general david petraeus and general allen, john allen. secretary of defense leon panetta has jumped into all of this, ordering an ethics training for generals to be reviewed here. do you think, first of all, that that is the right way to go? do you think that's an adequate response at this time? you have been a general 30 years in the military. is this kind of review helpful? >> it is, suzanne. every time the military has a challenge that demonstrates a weakness in one of those elements that would -- that we would call foundational to the success of the military, you have to take what's called a stand-down or a review. you spend time focussing very narrowly and deeply on one particular vertical and in this case it's values. we not only have this issue with dave petraeus and toe poe teshlly john allen, but the defendant defense just demoted general kip ward from his four stars to three stars. we have a four star that acted with indiscretion apparently for some time at fort bragg. we have ae three star -- there are multiple examples
against many others. my good friend, senator john mccain -- and he really is my friend -- he and i have debated on the floor many times, but he said something that i want to quote from 2005 when there were criticisms of condoleezza rice who was being considered for the office of secretary of state. this is what senator mccain said -- "so i wonder why we're starting this new congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion. i can only conclude we're doing this for no other reason because of lingering bitterness of the outcome of the election. we all have varying policy views, but the president in my view has a clear right to put into place the team he believes will serve him best." i agree with senator mccain's statement. let us get the facts together. let us find out what truly occurred before we point a finger of blame on any person in our government, let's make certain we do so with a knowledge of the facts and the evidence that we can gather. we owe it to the ambassador, his family and all the others who were either injured or lost their lives in this occurrence. i urge
noticed john and pete, because we want to the same school, even though we were a year longer. they just had something about them. i asked him if he was and a band. she said -- he said are you getting paid? i said no. he said we are. of course i was not telling the truth. he joined, and later on he introduced peek into the band. the band and they were in there were playing more does that rock-and-roll. -- there were playing more rock and roll. to me, pete is the most original great guitarist. totally original. [applause] >> what is the role of the major labels when that is not possible for recording artists to self published for the fan base? >> this is a real shit heap. there are so many wonderful things about the internet and digitization of music and photographs and information and images and everything, but as much as the record industry they have exploited teenagers, exploited country music stars, took the music and did not pay royalties or whatever, one thing they always did was to give an artist a fair crack to allow them to have a hit, this, another mess, and then another hit and
overcrowding in california prisons the state is looking to drop warrants for some parolees. ktvu's john sasaki obtained a memo for what some are calling a get out of jail free card. >>> some parol offenders are about to have a very bad day. these men are members of the aprehe apprehension and they go after some very dangerous people. it's going to get more sparse soon. on this day we rolled along as they took parolees to custody. two sex offenders they could see was violating -- but right now the state is considering discharging 10,000 parolees at large from state parol. they will always pursue nonserious sex offenders that will be left on the streets. for now be that will change too. >> for anyone who has committed a crime but others who have committed violent crimes, then the question is what are the issues. often a more efficient way to deal with offenders who have committed lower level offenses. >> it's irresponsible on the state's part to make such a decision that would have impact locally on our violent crime. >> oakland police chief howard jordan is concerned about the change who says

there. >> hi, john. the response has been very warm. obviously the people we're seeing are people who want to come out and embrace the president's message. but he spoke here in this auditorium, at an historic site, to 1500 students and professionals. people who are pro-democracy, advocates, and regular citizens who just wanted to hear his message. he got a very warm reception here and the white house said that he was moved, as well, by the thousands of people who came out to greet him on the road outside the airport when he arrived. the airport gave an address in which he acknowledged that democracies are sometimes difficult and it's a struggle to get to full freedom. but he said that it is, of course, worth the effort. and he also made clear that it isn't just a visit of goodwill, it also has strategic significance with a message to another nation in the area. listen to this. i don't know if we have that sound. we don't have the sound. but he talked about-ish he said i have a message to north korea, as well. if north korea wants to make the same choice that myanmar made, and get rid
," andrea mitchell, nbc news washington. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief correspondent. as we look at this hearing, two parties, two very different takes on that testimony yesterday. is anyone going to be satisfied here? >> i don't think so. i think this is -- what we're seeing in the petraeus scandal and the benghazi issue being prolonged is an extension of some of the conflict and bitterness that we had during the election campaign. i'm not sure what the resolution of that is going to be. i think ultimately that energy is going to get spent and lawmakers are going to turn to the real crisis that is looming over the american economy, which is the fiscal cliff and the potential that we could go back into recession. >> there did seem to be positive sentiments out of those meetings with the president and congressional leaders. if we're sticking with the positivity theme here, any sense of a timeline here on something getting done? >> yes. the leaders were -- and i agree with you, that was as positive an aftermath of a meeting as you could have hoped for, if you were president obama o
traveling with the president. dan, thank you. >>> senator john mccain says the u.s. must use its influence to try to bring an end to the violence along the border between israel and gaza, and he knows, john mccain says he knows just the man to do it. mccain says former president bill clinton should get involved. when he was president, mr. clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. here's what mccain had to say about it on cbs' "face the nation." >> try to find someone, even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge,
that ambassador susan rice used. >> let me interrupt you for just a moment. john mccain is just emerged from the senate intelligence committee meeting. let's listen to what he has to say. >> ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intelligence, and described the actions and that of his agency and interaction with other agencies and i appreciate his service and his candor. >> senator, senator. >> so as the senator walks away from the reporters who are amassed, he is with the armed services committee, so unlikely that he is has been able to be privy to the closed door meeting of the senate intelligence committee. i don't know, dana, can you shed light on that? i didn't get to hear what he said unfortunately. >> yes. he actually has been in the intelligence committee meetings, you're right. he is not a member officially of the intelligence committee any more and used to be and so there are privileges for people like him with his kind of seniority. they get to sit in on these intelligence meetings and he has been going to most if not all of these important meetings and inclu
at some of the stuff from john mccain here. it's been four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid. just ten days since mitt romney lost, but they still are both holding a grudge apparently against the president in their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference call about obama's gifts and mccain's complaints about obama ally u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressive to turn them out to vote. >> susan rice should have known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. >> joy reid, let's go after romney first and the way he's calculating how he lost. now, you can give all kinds of reasons for losing and, fair enough, that's what you do in your head. but when you spout the argument that the other guy bought all the interest groups, all the categories of citizens a
, 1826, john adams receives a group of visitors in his upstairs library the town leaders of quincy organizing the upcoming anniversary of the declaration of independence and they are known from out as the office for independence. they asked him for a toast to be read to the celebrants on july july 4th from 1826 and adam replies independence forever. he says not a word. so i have nothing more to say except independence forever. the united states seems to be leading the charge of looking at liberal democrats such as hillary clinton and also the neocons and the invasion of iraq and most recently the globalist obama and the invasion of libya so my question is here we have the united states tonight and the sovereignty of other nations and that is a problem when we have two parties with both essentially are war parties. >> in my book i distinguish between sovereignty in general which would be the sovereignty currently of the burmese or any autocratic state and i call them the philadelphians but there are other democratic sovereign states that make that distinction to be the democratic so
